Make a holiday rental villa or accommodation in Silves, Portugal your home away from home

Silves, the ancient capital of the Algarve, has evidence of settlements on the land reaching back to 1,000BC, and the old town is awash with fascinating sites from throughout the ages! Surrounded by rich colours of orange orchards and almond groves, the town of Silves is a sleepy town surrounded by the rolling foothills of the Monchique Mountains, perfect for an exploration and investigation of the Algarve.

Things to do on holiday in Silves, Portugal

Although many of the town’s most important historical remains were destroyed during the 1755 earthquake, the impressive sandstone Silves Castle remained strong, due to the huge Moorish walls which support it. Silves Castle is the largest castle in the Algarve, and is certainly among the most beautiful. The Museu Arqueologico has managed to collate and display various artefacts from throughout the town’s history, and pieced them together for visitors to get a clearer understanding of Silves’ history and influence. The Roman Ponte Romana and 13th Century Cathedral also make for interesting viewing if you have the time whilst staying in a Silves property.

Despite a huge amount being made out of Silves’ ancient heritage, there is much more to taking accommodation in Silves than touring historical sites. A Silves property or villa in Silves’ outskirts is the perfect base for golfing holidays to the Algarve or for exploration of the Algarve. Centrally located, accommodation in Silves can be used for holidays in the beach, in the Sierra de Monichique or exploring the large Algarve towns of Loule, Portimao, Albufeira or Lagoa. The famous Algarve beaches of Carvoeiro are just a 15 minute drive from self catering accommodation in Silves, with all their attractions and sports facilities.

The golf courses of Vale de Milho, Quinta do Gramacho and Vale da Pinta can all be reached very easily from a Silves villa too. There are public courses dotted across the countryside, so finding a round from Silves accommodation will not prove difficult.

Places to holiday in Silves, Portugal

Lagoa is only 8km from accommodation in Silves, and is one of the most picturesque towns you will be able to find in Portugal. Located at the summit of one of the coastal hills, Lagoa is also a magnificent base for golf and sightseeing, and the golden beaches of Ferragudo and Carvoeiro are just miles away.

Weather in Silves, Portugal

Summers in Silves are very warm, and Silves villas with pools are hugely sought after during June, July and August. Temperatures from October until April are cooler, but remain blissfully warm, with monthly averages staying between 15 and 22˚C, perfect for walking, golfing or cycling throughout the area.

Flights to Silves, Portugal

Located just 30 minutes from Faro Airport (FAO), a holiday villa in Silves is very easily reached. Faro receives multiple daily flights from across the UK, provided by a range of luxury or ‘no frills’ airlines. When you arrive in Faro, it is probably a good idea to take a hire car, not only to reach your accommodation in Silves, but also so that you can easily reach the beaches or attractions in the Silves area without having to rely on public transport, meaning you can get the most from the flexibility and space provided by taking a private Silves property for your holiday.

The property was very well equiped with everything you need for a relaxing holiday. Paul and his wife have thought of everything from books, games chidrens toys and plenty of pool toys. They also have use of a cot highchair buggy carseat etc so no need to bring everything with you. Only 5-10 mins travel to restaurants and supermarkets and about 20 mins to Albufeira. Also about same to zoomarine. All in all a fabulous place would definitely book again.

This is the perfect setting for a holiday if you want to get away from it all.The region is set amongst citrus groves and olive and carob trees . The setting is truly stunning with immaculate gardens , a very well cared for pool,by John and breathtaking views across to the distant hills. The house is extremely clean and well cared for . There is plenty of room for 6 people .and all the mod cons exactly as described.The kitchen is like new and the bathrooms are very modern and clean.The wifi speed is better than our home ! Jean is obviously meticulous in making sure everything is up to scratch and comfortable. She even left us a bottle of wine and some fresh figs. Jean and John are available for any queries if needed but are not at all intrusive. You must have a car when staying here.It is very easy to use the house as a base. We visited the West,Central and Eastern Algarve easily as the roads are so empty and spent the rest of the time relaxing in the gardens round the pool. We would love to visit this area again and would definitely try and stay at this fantastic villa. Thank you Jean and John.

We had all of that and more. There was almost no traffic noise, the peace was amazing. There was plenty of places to sit, read a book and enjoy the views and sun. Everything in the villa was well appointed and spotlessly clean. We certainly hope to be back again.Having re read this review it does not give Douglas and Sean justice to all the hard work they put into making this a beautiful home.
